So does anyone have it yet?

Going back and forth on ordering. Haven’t seen much video or heard much about it’s effectiveness in bass fishing application.

That little video pretty much says it all. There is nothing out there like it. It's real time, not history. You can see the same thing on any piece of cover, not just stumps. Laydowns, rocks, docks, anything you can imagine. If it's not showing fish, move on to the next piece of cover. I'm sure Lowrance and H-bird engineers are putting in some rrrrreeeeeaaalllly long hours right now, but for a couple of years there are going to be a bunch of guys joining Sons of Fishes.

That is pretty cool. I don't have it nor do I have Humminbird 360. Could you speed up the scan rate of the 360 and do the same thing?

If you could get the 360 faster and still have decent quality picture then it could get close but not the same. It would still be showing history and not really live. On the other hand, the 360 is much better at what it does because you will locate things that you may never have known existed. Similar to what SI has done to graphs.

When I saw the initial videos released I was amazed at the clarity and ability to actually see the fish swim. Once I looked closer and saw that they were really large fish like tarpon I was a little less impressed. Looks nice but not enough there yet to make me want to change, atleast for bass fishing.

I haven't seen any tarpon yet but sure would like to. I've seen crappie, sand bass, bluegill, and bass "swimmingly" though.

Until users post video or pictures nobody really knows how well it works... 360 views dont look like all the advertisement pictures do. And yes I use and love my 360 3-5 days a week right now....

Yep. Exactly. Using it to catch crappie off a stump that’s 6’ in front of you is a little different than using it to locate and catch bass.

I believe the very first video that Garmin released showed a tarpon

How so? The last 2 tournaments I have fished I was exclusively fishing giant submerged stumps along a river channel, most of which are not visible above the water line. Some have fish on them, most don't. It's like picking cherries.
